Hi, my name is Ben Congdon.  My family and I are from a town in south Texas called New Braunfels, a fast-growing community that still retains a small town feel.  I attended John Brown University and graduated in 2010 with a degree in illustration.  Since that time I have undertaken a wide variety of freelance projects- from logo creation to the full design and illustration of children’s books.   I now work for a company called Dixie Flag Manufacturing in San Antonio as their lead graphic artist.  I handle a wide variety of projects, delegate the workflow, and communicate with customers to ensure they receive the desired end product.

I have always loved the outdoors and observing what God shows us through His creation.  It can be easy to let the noise and distractions of our lives overpower our relationships and dilute our faith.  I find an escape of sorts when I have the chance to create and design.  You can see from my gallery that I enjoy recreating beautiful landscapes and scenery.  It is a reminder to me of the more important things in life and often points me back to the One who has blessed me with everything that I have.

    Ben, I have a couple of questions for you and I may be interested in your Iron Horse print.
    My family ( Whitehead Brother’s) had a traveling vaudeville & silent picture show from about 1909 till the mid 30’s. They travelled mainly in Texas & Oklahoma but other states also.
    There was a photographer that travelled with them by the name of Congdon from Carrizo Springs, Tx. He and his wife, took many pictures of our family but I have only 1 picture with his wife who is pointed out as Mrs. Congdon.
    I have been unable to find their first names or any record of them.
    I was hoping you may be related and we could help each other out?
    I have log books of some of the years that my family travelled.
    How much would the Iron Horse print run? I didn’t find it when I followed the link to your store. Thank You, Roby
